look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Inpired by Belgian tripels. Brewed only with English ale yeast, English whole cone hops, and east Anglican grains.

a: Swingtop opens with a resounding pop and the beer starts foaming. Dark, hazy orange iced tea color; pours with a small short lived head, oddly enough.

s: Toffee and fruity tea, plus biscuity malts and strong herbal/grassy hop note.

t: Lightly sweet up front with hints of fruity potpourri, some toffee, and some mineral-y biscuits. Strong, grassy hop finish with lingering aspirin bitterness and some heat.

m: Pretty hefty, gently carbonated.

o: I've never had anything quite like this. Inspired by Belgian Tripels... but this was pretty hoppy. I'd call it an English DIPA and a good one at that.

A: Pours a cloudy dark amber with a fair amount of dense off-white head. This retains reasonably well, leaving mild walls of lacing.

S: Bready sweetness and hops with an underlying barleywine-esque note.

T: Sweet, though not overly so, with a long-lasting malt note. There is a slightly boozy touch of something like rum. Good depth and complexity.

M: Full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, quite a nice beer. It doesn't taste as strong as it is, except for the depth and complexity of the flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellowish brown in color. It poured with a finger high off tan colored head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and a little lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of grassy and herbal hops.
T: The taste has complex flavors of Belgian and earthy yeast and mineral water along with notes of herbal hops and hints of grainy malts and fruity yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with ever so slight bits of warming from the alcohol, particularly after the beer warms up.
O: Upon first smelling the aroma of this beer, you quickly realize that this is quite unlike other English Barleywines in that it has a lot of Belgian flair, most notably from the yeast strain. It tastes a little like a Tripel.

Note: Batch #70, Bottled 2/27/2013

On tap at Kings Row Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and malt flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but smells much better in my opinion.

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a lightly hazy caramel amber with a fine one finger light tan head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and lightly sour apples. Flavor of caramel malt, apple and pear, light citrus and grassy hops, which dominate the slightly drier finish; slightly spicy. Slight Belgian yeast hings. Very pleasant medium to heavy creamy body. An idiosynchratic take on an English barleywine, with claims to be inspired by Belgian tripels. Except for the minor yeast component, I don't see much of the Belgian influence, but I totally buy that if there was an English tripel style, this would fit the bill. Malty with pleasant light fruit notes make this an interesting ale. Unusual, but I liked it a lot.
